Description Randy Barlow 2016-01-14 12:09:01 EST
The maintainer of pymongo seems to have been absent for quite some time. There is one severe issue that has been filed for a while against pymongo that has not gotten attention:


pymongo does not work at all with Python 3, and it is a packaging problem and not an upstream issue.

Additionally, there have been other releases of pymongo that are available upstream that are not getting packaged for Rawhide:


Additionally, though this bug was fixed, it was fixed by a provenpackager and not by the maintainer:


I am the maintainer of python-mongoengine which uses this package, and I am also the maintainer of Pulp which uses both python-mongoengine and python-pymongo. We need this package to be actively maintained.

I am willing to help out, if you will approve my request for commit/administration ACLs:


My FAS account is rbarlow. Thanks!

Hi. I'm happy to have the help. I'm not an active pymongo user, so I'm not following these issues as well as I probably should. (I mainly stepped in in the first place because no one else had stepped up.)

This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.
